    You look at a weld and can tell they used a bicycle spoke for filler and a toaster to weld it.

    If at the moment all you are wishing for is ONE good tack to hold this slippery son-of-a-gun still so you can get on with things.

    You might be a newbie welder if you wish that TIG tungstens came in 36" lengths and filler rod came in 7" sticks, makes more sense when you are new at it!

    Don't forget about the 14" grinding wheels for those tungstens! L.O.L.
    Sometimes there's no second chances.

    ...if you find the whole welder/weldor debate redundant.

    ...if you've had metal ground out of your eye twice...in one month.

    ...if that pulpmill Black Liquor smell is "The smell of Money!"

    ...if you've ever had to ask a regular customer, "What did you break now?"

    ...if you've ever had a 7 year old tell you that "You have spots on your head!" after shaving your hair down to a 1/4".

    I worked with an individual that burned his unmentionables...The ironic thing? He went by the name of Willy!

    Default You might be a Welder if.....

    Back when I was learning to TIG at the local college the welding instructor said every day donít throw your TIG torch over the metal you just welded there is a water line in all that for cooling purposes, He also said it never fails no matter how much he says it one idiot will do it......

    My classes where late at night and my dad was always in bed before I even went to class. But one night my dad called, I panicked and threw my TIG torch over the metal I just welded and left my boot to talk to my dad when I came back I had a nice BIG puddle to clean up LOL.

    After that I made it a habit to throw the TIG torch over my leg. Well as any one who has ever learned to TIG knows when youíre new you donít always let of the pedal quite all the way and some times the tungsten gets red hot!!! Well one night I threw that RED HOT tungsten over my leg and missed the gap between my legs and threw it right in my lap it burned threw my pants faster than butter, O yea I also forgot to let the pedal all the way and sent a small charge to my William!

    I can laugh at it now but back then it was a sore subject to talk about. LOL

    That's one reason our school uses gas-cooled torches.

    Our setups look like these. No problem to maintain and swapouts are instant.
